The rare tri-colored palomino!!
I forget... and too lazy to dig.... isn't he a son of YROT?
He sure is!!
He's adorable!! Plus he's shedding off better then my yearling. Brown roan here
I don't know whether to laugh or cry every time I see my shaggy rat pony. Your Trouble is sleek in my book
It'll all be worth it when the yak is a beautiful butterfly ......er....roan!!!!
Puddin - the woes of the roans!! I feel like it's 1000x worse than my bays.
What I dislike about roan is how you never know how "roany" your roan will be year to year.
The first year I bought Jesse, who is a bay roan, he was silver. He's never shed out that way again. I don't know what controls it... diet? Sun exposure? Being under lights? Body clipping?
His diet is better than it was when I bought him. We've played with different diets over the years, and none has made much difference in what color he is or how silver he is. We've kept him under lights a couple winters, and that didn't produce that silver. We usually keep him in a UV flysheet, and that hasn't mattered. We body clipped him last winter, and he did look a bit more silvery but nothing like he did when I bought him. He mostly just looks like a bay with some sheen. In the winter he looks completely bay.
Foxy's colors are based on how he feels from his diet. The darker he is the better he feels.
Lynx, my hay roan (my 30 year old) only has silver in his name and tail, a patch if silver under his neck, and on his butt. It' like that no matter what haha
Today I had my vet/farrier out (love the combo!) To trim some feeties, and snapped a picture of trouble. He just went through a small growth spurt so he is a little skinny -.-. He was so good for everything.Ive increased his grain , and my gelding and trouble are basically on free choice alfalfa (my vet told me to stop worrying, it's a growing horse thing, but I worry none the less haha)
